studentGPS™ Dashboards Adopter Selection Criteria

TEA's Early Adopter Strategy

The following strategy is being used to deploy TSDS PEIMS and studentGPS™ Dashboards in the Early Adopter Phase (2013–14).

  1. TEA will make sure each Education Service Center (ESC) will have at least one TSDS PEIMS and one studentGPS™ Dashboards early adopter local education agency (LEATexas school district or charter school) in 2013–14.
  2. The student enrollment goal for TSDS PEIMS is 500,000 students and for studentGPS™ Dashboards is 1,000,000 students.
  3. LEAs were selected for the Early Adopter Phase based on their responses to the TSDS Early Adopter Survey and the Follow-up Early Adopter Survey. LEAs that met the basic threshold were selected to be an early adopter.  

Points of Consideration for LEAs Implementing TSDS PEIMS

  1. The LEA must have at least one year of experience with current source data vendors (SIS, HR, and finance).
  2. The LEA must not be planning to switch to a new source data vendor (SIS, HR, and finance) in the next two years.
  3. The LEA is committing to submitting PEIMS data for the 2013–14 school year through the new TSDS PEIMS system and through the legacy EDIT+ system. The data submitted through EDIT+ will be the LEA’s official PEIMS submission. The data submitted through the TSDS PEIMS system will be a parallel test of the data to ensure a TSDS PEIMS submission represents the data exactly as it is in the EDIT+ system. LEAs must commit the time and resources to submit data through both systems.
  4. The LEA PEIMS Steward/Coordinator has experience with the EDIT+ and current PEIMS process.
  5. LEA leadership is committed to provide resources to serve as PEIMS Steward (likely PEIMS coordinator), Data Steward, and (if large LEA) Program Steward (see Roles and Responsibilities for details).
  6. The LEA will need to be able to load data into the TSDS Operational Data Store (ODS). Hardware requirements were provided to the LEAs. At a minimum, the LEA will need to have one dedicated server and a T1 line. Additionally, the LEA will need to have a compatible web browser.
  7. Source data vendors should be ready to create data extracts from source systems by August 31, 2013.

Criteria for studentGPS™ Dashboards Adopters

  1. The LEA must have at least one year of experience with current source data vendors (SIS, HR, and assessment).
  2. The LEA must not be planning to switch to a new source data vendor SIS, HR, and assessment) in the next two years.
  3. LEA leadership is committed to provide resources available at LEA to serve as Dashboard Steward, Data Steward, and (if large LEA) Program Steward (see Roles and Responsibilities for details).
  4. LEA leadership is committed to providing time and resources to train teachers and administrators on the use of the studentGPS™ Dashboards.
  5. The LEA will need to be able to load data into the TSDS Operational Data Store (ODS). Hardware requirements will be provided to the LEAs. At a minimum, the LEA will need to have one dedicated server and a T1 line. Additionally, the LEA will need to have a compatible web browser.
